2 NEW Marketplace Sires

New Releases

Holstein Marketplace Sires is pleased to make two bulls available hailing from the popular Cookiecutter MOM Halo-ET VG-88 DOM family. Halo traces back through six generations of Very Good and Excellent dams to the prominent Snow-N Denises Dellia EX-95 2E GMD DOM.

712HO01012 COOKIECUTTER D HELMSMAN-ET *RC, bred and owned by Cookiecutter Holsteins LLC, Hudson Falls, N.Y. HELMSMAN is sired by Claynook Discjockey-ET, out of VG-85 Cookiecutter Avlnc Hayva-ET. His next dam, EX-94 2E Cookiecutter Mac Halmaci-ET, boasts a lifetime production record of almost 174,000 pounds of milk with 4.5% fat and 3.3% protein tests. In total, HELMSMAN is backed by 10 generations of Very Good and Excellent dams. He is a strong type improver at +3.58 PTAT and +2.93 UDC, with positive components and production. HELMSMAN is also a red carrier.

Holstein announces new TPI change

Holstein Association USA will implement an adjustment to the Total Performance Index® (TPI®) formula in conjunction with the official genetic evaluation run taking place in April 2021.

The April 2021 change enhances HAUSA’s existing Feed Efficiency (FE$) formula by incorporating the new Feed Saved trait that was released in December 2020. The economic assumptions used in the formula have been updated to match the most current research done by USDA-AGIL.

Feed costs can make up over half of the total costs on a dairy farm and selecting for more feed-efficient cows can improve a farm’s bottom line. Genetic selection for feed efficiency supports our industry goals to reduce the overall environmental footprint associated with producing a gallon of milk.

The formula for FE$ starting in April 2021 will be: ($0.0008 x Milk) + ($1.55 x Fat) + ($1.73 x Protein) + ($0.11 x Feed Saved)

The first three components of this formula reflect the extra profit coming from cows producing more pounds of milk, fat, and protein. The additional feed costs required to produce an extra pound of milk, fat, and protein, have been subtracted from the income that farmers receive for their milk. Component prices, reflecting primarily a cheese market, have been updated. The trait Feed Saved includes information based upon HAUSA’s Body Weight Composite and new data on dry matter intake from CDCB. Every pound of feed saved returns a net profit of eleven cents per cow per lactation.

Holstein America Broadcasts February 8 on RFD-TV

Each day, dairy farmers across America rise to the challenge of feeding a growing world. Consumers today have more choices than ever before when it comes to high quality milk, delicious cheese, and other dairy products. None of this would be possible without U.S. Registered Holsteins®, and the people who raise them.

Holstein Association USA shares stories of the nation’s dairy producers through its documentary series Holstein America. Now in the program’s fourth year, the next episode broadcasts at 7 p.m. CST Monday, Feb. 8 on RFD-TV. Mark the calendar or set the DVR to record this exciting television broadcast celebrating the dairy community.

In the upcoming episode, Holstein America explores the versatility of milk and U.S. Registered Holsteins. On farms from Colorado to Massachusetts, individuals, and families from all walks of life share their passion for Registered Holsteins — and providing an abundance of dairy products, sustainably.

South Dakota State University students showcase their first-hand experience with dairy production and manufacturing. In Wisconsin, Widmer’s Cheese Cellars gives a behind-the-scenes look at how artisan cheeses are handled and made with care.
